I’ve bought things through Tradesy, but have never had to make a return.  Most brides who buy used dresses either eat the cost or try to resell if the dress doesn’t work out.

Is it possible to try on the dress in person at a local store?  if you love it, I see nothing wrong with going the online route!  I purchased my first 9 dress online before trying it on, and it was a disaster.  So my only advice is not to buy sight-unseen.

SouthernBee0713 :  I purchased a dress off Tradesy. I very similar situation to what you are describing in that it was being sold by a salon, although mine was a sample. 

 

If you’ve tried on this dress and you are certain that the dress is the one for you and this is the size you need, then I would go for it. If you are concerned about the dress not being what was advertised, Tradesy guarantees this for a full refund. From their site:

We’ll give you a full refund if the condition, style, or authenticity of this listing are misrepresented in any way.

If you receive an item that you believe is inauthentic or was inaccurately described in its listing, you can file a Misrepresentation Claim and you may qualify a full refund.

 

You can always ask the salon if the dress was ever tried on, it it has any marks on the hem or from makeup, and ask that they provide more photos. 

 

Also, you can try negotiating the price further. I knocked another $150 off the price they originally were asking just by asking if I could pay that price.
